Impact Cubed’s new EU Taxonomy solution provides global insights into green investments
Data and portfolio reports streamline reporting burdens to meet EU Taxonomy disclosure requirements
London, February 23, 2022- Impact Cubed today launched its new solution to help investors meet the European Union’s (EU) Taxonomy regulation. These new rules, intended to counteract greenwashing, spell out the criteria for a green investment and require market participants to disclose how they are aligned with them.
Impact Cubed’s tech-enabled solution, developed through consultation with investors in Europe and the US, includes data, portfolio analytics, and ready-made regulatory reports so that investors can assess companies against EU Taxonomy criteria and build more sustainable portfolios.
“As investors, we understand the importance of robust data and the complexity of company reporting” said Antti Savilaakso, head of research at Impact Cubed. “Our quantitative ESG and impact models raised the industry standard and were built to assess company business activities in a more objective, granular way with global coverage, which gives us an edge when dealing with EU Taxonomy criteria and compliance reporting.”
Impact Cubed’s data science and digital tools provide full coverage of all 40,000+ globally listed equities so investors can assess international companies, not just those in Europe. This equips asset managers with powerful insights for portfolio construction and also makes the solution ideal for the most discerning investors, including managers of hedge funds or emerging market portfolios.
Impact Cubed’s platform offers tech-enhanced tools to screen companies or funds, create ready-made compliance reports, or build investment products in line with the EU Taxonomy criteria. Investors can elect to use Impact Cubed’s estimation and sciencebased proxy data which offers a holistic picture of a portfolio’s alignment, even if reporting is low. Full transparency is provided into Impact Cubed’s methods to calculate taxonomy aligned revenue, including eligibility, substantial contribution, do no significant harm, and minimum safeguard content for both climate change mitigation and adaptation criteria.
The new EU Taxonomy solution complements Impact Cubed’s SFDR PAI solution launched in October 2021, designed to help investors meet the requirements of the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation.
